What is sexual harassment and sexual assault
Victim Support services are confidential, free and available to anyone who’s been raped or sexually assaulted, now or in the past. They can help, regardless of whether you have told the police or anyone else about the attack.
Their volunteers can visit you at home or somewhere else if you prefer. If you don’t want to see anyone face-to-face, you can also talk to Victim Support on the ‘phone, either at one of their local offices or at the national Victim Supportline.
